Let’s Talk Patterns

Oftentimes when discussing different ways to spruce up a particular space, the conversation inevitably turns into a discussion about patterns.

Whether you are pro patterns or not, there is definitely something appealing about having a pop of pattern in your home. The great thing about them is their versatility. There are a wide variety of patterns options and combinations that can be used as subtly or as boldly as you want.

One of the more versatile and popular patterns found in homes lately is the Herringbone.

Not to be confused wit the Chevron or Flamestich, the Herringbone is a zigzag pattern comprised of rectangles arranged in a staggering pattern at 45-degree angles. Fun fact: it’s named Herringbone because of its resemblance to the bones of a herring fish.

Below are a couple of examples of how you can easily incorporate the Herringbone pattern into your home without overpowering the rest of your room’s aesthetic.
